is that the by law is not specific to graffiti. so, graffiti is not defined. it doesn't say that it slashes or it doesn't describe it in that nature. and it doesn't speak to permission either. the by law is written such that it's under community standards 14600 with respect to community standards and buildings that are considered a nuisance. there's a specific statement in there, i don't have it in front of me unfortunately, with respect to graffiti. and, so, i guess the question, then, -- question is, do we ever have trouble with property owners saying, well, i want to have this piece of graffiti on our property and i don't feel it's a nuisance and i'm not going to remove it? and we haven't had any problems actually whatsoever with our graffiti by law being challenged. how the by law works is that our by law officers, any graffiti that comes up is at their discretion. so, whether they determine what is on the property is a nuisance and it allows us to keep our mural programs running. it allows us to look at individual situations. early on we had one situation where there was a property own

to these incidents. and the key question for us was what are the laws that are currently in place and how do we enforce those laws to make sure that these workers and these women are protected and that is when we started talking about forcing on enforcement of the bubble ordinance and something that we have tried and did for a while and quite frankly, the bubble ordinance has not worked. it has not given the tools for the city agencies that are involved to protect these women and these workers. and it is at that time that we started thinking about different options after trying that kind of implementation, if you will, for a few months. and we talked about the creation of a white zone ordinance. and and again the goal here was to strike a balance between the protection of people's right to free speech. and the right of women and men and families to access healthcare at these clinics and an ordinance was crafted and interview and passed by this board of supervisor and we tried to enforce that white zone ordinance in conjunction with the bubble ordinance and yet the intimidation and the harassmen
that they need. we also believe that it will make it easier for law enforcement to enforce this ordinance. i also have that for the record, for public records, submission, some of the pamphlets that are given by the protestors with false information regarding birth control and the effects of abortions. and along with a couple of statements from several patients that have been harassed. and then, finally i have got some pictures and i don't know if i would be able to display them here today. >> slide down. >> sorry, some of these pictures. >> they show the narrowness of the sidewalk as you can see there, you can see if you were coming into our health center you would have to walk, and navigate your way through this and very narrow sidewalk, the intimidation intent of it is very clear and as you can see from this photo, they put the camera there, and you can see a video camera, right there, filming people that are coming into the health center and filming the staff, the staff also is intimidated and one of the woman walked into the health center and woke up a patient and started telling her how tha

clustering at all in the city is because of restrictions that the law and the ordinance have established and limited the number of organizations that they can establish themselves. it's very difficult to find a landlord. so to say you can be in these limited places and when you created the clustering through regulations is effectively to prohibit new dispensaries to open and effectively to have safe access and it really is an attack on the medical cannabis patients and the medical community. thank you. i'm just alex. i'm from georgia, disabled. the restricted zoning seems to be very inconsistent with the city's status as a sanctuary city. it limits competition which is already hurting from the federal intervention. for people to say that dispensaries cause any sort of public safety issues, it would just take walking and looking out to see that they have personnel during business hours. there is constant video surveillance and they are providing medicine which people in the city needs . i think less restrictions would be more appropriate. good afternoon commissioners, my name is steven co

. i can tell you in the lockdown turned boston in to almost a state of marshall law. in the public garden, we saw the swan boats were just sitting there. they were floating in the lag n lagoon. nobody was there. they have been a boston traditional for over 130 years. in the boston commons there were more s.w.a.t. teams than people. usually that's a place where workers and runners go by the thousands. the freedom trail, which is the red brick line that takes tourists and school children to all of the historic sites in this city, connected to the american revolution, no one was walking the freedom trail. it was a very unusual day. yet, even though people were inconvenienced, even though they were told to stay in their homes, people i talked to, brian, as the lockdown went on, they all said one thing, they didn't want the suspect to be killed when he was captured. they wanted him to be taken alive because they want answers as to why those two men did what they did to the city of boston, to the boston marathon and to this country because people don't understand how somebody could leav

through how each of us relates, what are the limitations, what are the laws, what are the rules of engagement, how do we actually work together? and that sets the stage for everything that has come beyond that. the big exchange of information at a very high level and it quickly led to the conclusion we all understand the policy of it, but as was the case in a lot of situations, we don't get past the diagram. we don't get past the policy page and the wire die agrams and if we want to make this meaningful we need to get past the next level and we need to start stretching the boundaries and start talking it each other in as close to real world situations as we can so we each understand how the other operates, what the limitations are, what the boundaries are, and from there we can start to grow as institutions and try to make this institutional knowledge and not just individual relationships. so in 2011, we took it to the next step and we took a table top and we picked medical surge. a lot of people looked at that and said, well, there's there's this and there's that and the mi

resources and law enforcement are owned by the governor which, as established, comes from the turkish government. fire fighters and things like public works are owned by the municipality. let me tell you about budget discrepancies. the fire department, i got to tell you, when i went and i met with the fire chief, that one left a mark. their fire department was red tagged but they didn't have a place because it was so cold to house their engines because you can't leave diesel engines out in the cold, just doesn't work too well, so they still had to use the facility but they housed the personnel in two tents out in front. their headquarters is one tent and their dorm is another tent and they welcomed us in there, didn't even think twice. and in the story of what it was like there, for a community of nearly 700,000 people, their complete complement of fire fighters that were on duty, their professional staff, was just over 40. they had 4 pieces of apparatus. the newest of which was over 10 years old. they kept it together literally with duct tape and baling wire and that's what th
significant going to the condo conversion law. and by not having a lottery for at least the next ten years we will have a chance to reassess this whole tic business which has resulted in out of control condos and irresponsible sales to these tic owners by real estate speculators and take more advances in rent control housing stock. and i, too, want to reiterate that we have heard today from supervisor farrell that he would like to support these amendments, perhaps with some tweaks, that these are as far as tenants can give and we need to see these amendments adopted as is right now. and again, thanks for all your work, supervisors chiu, kim and yee who is no longer here. thanks. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> hi. i'd like to first of all just say that tenants are in need at this time. and i just really feel like tic owners knew what they were getting into when they purchased properties. and if they felt like they needed to have real estate financing down the line, that maybe they should have bought more modest investments. and that's just the way i feel. i'm sorry if i'm unsympathetic. i'm a

challenges based on state law. i believe there are some concerns about enforcing those lifetime leases. so, since costa hawkins prevents restriction on property after sale. i wanted to make sure that the lifetime leases are signed and recorded prior to close of escrow. so, the following amendment would, one, prevent any contracted seller transfer converizonthed properties. 2, prevent sell until after the mapping process is complete and the lifetime leases have been recorded. the amendments will require the applicants to complete a form certifying no contract to transfer/sell until after mapping and will make the mapping contingent upon the completion of this form. >> okay, thank you, supervisor kim. colleagues, are there any additional comments? if not, then why don't we open it up to public comment. public comment will be two minutes. when you have 30 seconds left, you will hear a soft bell. when your time is up, you'll hear a louder bell. and if you would like to speak and if not filled out a blue card, please do so and hand it to the clerk. so, i will call the first batch of public spea
sometimes become homeless after a natural disasters such as floods or tornados, but no government law would cause people to become homeless. america is the most affluent country in the world. we are very happy and lucky to have an opportunity to come here from a different country and make our lives better. however, i was shocked to see so many homeless people living in the dirty streets of san francisco.

had two milltrix out there, the active force and responding. with changes in the law and changes in focus and direction we're starting to fix a lot of that and come together as one joint team to be able to better serve the people here in the state of california and the rest the nation in times of disaster. but there is work that needs to be done. first, we need to find a way that we can share capabilities that are resident within each of our organizations. as the commander of the army national guard you would think i know what forces are available in the army reserve in california. but i don't. i don't even know who their general officers are. i have no visibility on what forces are available at camp pendleton depending on your deployment cycle what fleet week can bring to bear. and we need to find a way, perhaps dcl, north palm being the broker of that, to maintain a better capabilities database so we know what is immediately available because under our old constructs, if we needed additional help in the national guard in california, we would go to the national guard from other
about this proposal. presently, there is not adequate enforcement of vehicular laws on bike lanes. i give you valencia street as the most prominent example. it usually has double-parked vehicles on it, interfering with the safe bicycle use of the bike lane. i have concerns -- i've been a private bike user for 20 years and i am concerned that one of the effects of this program might be to discourage private bike use. i don't want to feel any pressure that i can't use my personal bike whenever i so fit. i have some privacy concerns. i believe that you will be monitoring the location of all of these bicycles. i believe the database so created will be out of the control of the users.
